Nothing wrong there, except Yolk, not whole egg.

* Dissolve the sugar and salt in the vinegar, and add a dash of mustard powder

* Add the yolk and whisk as hard as you can

* Egg yolk is the emusifier. Add the oil drop by drop initially, then a slow trickle, whisking hard all the while, till emulsification starts - after which you can increase the rate of adding oil

* Finish the emulsification before adding pepper, chives etc.

Chicken Sandwich.

Grind some pepper, curry leaves and garlic.
Chop a boneless chicken breast into small pieces no larger than 1cm.
Mix the ground stuff to chicken. Add some slat, lemon juice and olive oil.
Let this sit for about 15-20 mins.

Heat oil. Season it with some cumin.
Add a chopped onion.
Once onion turns translucent add the chicken.
Keep flame at high and keep mixing the chicken.
Once the chicken has turned white, reduce the flame to low and cook covered for 5 minutes.
Add chopped capsicum.
Mix well and continue cooking covered at low.
Check every 5 minutes till you are satisfied.

Stuff inside buns or bread.
Grill it if you want.

Enjoy.

Mix them up in a kadahi, add a bit of milk, let it cook for some time, and you have a basic burfi. Add spices and dry fruits to pep it up.

Pour the mixture on a thali with high sides. Cut up after it cools down.

I finally prepared this.

Roasted some ragi and bajra flours in melted butter.
Added jaggery and had it melt into the flours.

Once all of it was mixed, added the khova and took it off the stove.
Kept mixing till the khova had melted in.

Made small balls while it was still hot.

Tastes good only issue was some crystallization.
How to avoid that?

Cook the jaggery with grated coconut till the coconut becomes brown and gives out pleasant smell. Add the khowa, cook for sometime, make small balls while still hot. Too much jaggery or too much cooking will lead to a hard mass.

We bengalis call it "nadu". It can be made with sugar instead of jaggery and the coconut can be grinded in a mixie to make it a smoother.

The jaggery was cooked too long, plus there was moisture in the khoa. Jaggery melts at a low temperature.

I just wanted to share a grand feeling.

I am a rather mediocre cook when compared to others in my house. But when my 2 and a half year old daughter sees me cooking, her face lights up.
She fetches her plate and get ready even as I am cutting the vegetables.

One of those things that money cannot buy
This is one the greatest motivations for cooking. Your dish is sold out even before it is made. What else can you ask for. And the day she starts cooking, you can fetch your plate...

Guys, any suggestions on how to grill Sausages? I used to cook at least once a week earlier. But shunned the kitchen for some time.

1. You can use an electric griller
http://shopping.indiatimes.com/elect...0334/p_B928233

2. Use your microwave
. Use a microwave safe container with lid. I use Corning glass ovenware
. Separate the sausages and put them in the vessel and close the lid
. Microwave for 2-4 minutes. Start with 2 and note the progress. The sausages will be ready when they have darkened a bit.
. Take the lid off. Pour any liquid to a cup.
. Microwave for 30sec to 1.5 minutes till the sausages are properly done

These instructions are mainly for pork sausage, which have fat hence cook on their own. For Chicken or Beef sausages you have to add the fat - coat the sausages with a bit of oil. Keep basting with oil every minute (as is done with BBQ tikka, kebabs etc)

3. For large scale, use a charcoal grill

I was amazed to check out this thread. Quite useful for me as I am a hotel management student.

Though I am ashamed to admit that I can't cook anything except for egg preparations. Leave aside the dishes which I cook in college practicals. Also I am the one who makes tea for everyone in the house, everyday.

Default Grilled chicken burger : Or sloppy Joe indionic

Recipes / Discussions on cooking from Team-BHP Master Chefs-sloppy.jpg

Pictured above is the sloppy Joe's Indian version.
Do not go by appearance. Whole wheat buns break easily.

The goal was to create a delicious chicken burger without frying anything.

The blow recipe makes 2 burgers
Ingredients

2-3 Bread slices (use whole wheat bread)
250 gm Chicken kheems (Available from Republic of chicken or elsewhere)
1 egg
3-4 medium sized onions
Salt to taste (less than 1 tea spoon is good)
cheese slices or Cheese

1. Take bread pieces, and put them in blender to make fine powder
2. Cut 2-3 onions very small
3. Add Salt to chicken kheema and also add the onion
4. Start mixing. Try and make a round flat patty, it will break. So slowly keep adding bread powder till the patty is solid
5. Burger patty is ready, put in in grill (microwave grill)

Now cooking part.
Switch on combination cooking (Grill + microwave) and do it on 600W for 4 minutes or so

Go to grill mode only
Do 15 minutes each side.

Take one onion make rings, and microwave for about 40 seconds on high.

Add patty, onion rings cheese slice into bun, and microwave for 40 seconds on high. You can add sauce etc., inside, or add mayonese if you need some cholestrol.

Burger is ready.

No oil used, no frying, no thickening agents blah blah. Just a healthy burger.
To make it more fun, you can add, one "bulls eye" to your burger
